Zooplankton and other data from net casts in the Kodiak Lease Area from the DISCOVERER as part of Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) from 29 March 1978 to 20 April 1978 (NCEI Accession 7900194)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Zooplankton and other data were collected from net casts in the Kodiak Lease Area from the DISCOVERER from 29 March 1978 to 20 April 1978. Data were collected by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP). Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard F124 Zooplankton Data format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/f124.html. An analog file for this accession is availalbe from NODC user services.

The F124 format is used for data from sampling and analysis of marine zooplankton. Information on zooplankton abundance, distribution, and productivity derived from these data support studies of marine populations and ecosystems. Data reported may include: cruise information, position, date, and time of sampling; bottom depth, sampling depths, temperature, and salinity; gear type, volume of water filtered, total dry and wet weight, and other data for total haul; and data for subsamples by species. Data on zooplankton catch by species may include subsample size, zooplankton concentration, life history code, and numbers of adults, juveniles, eggs, and larvae. Estimated density of holoplankton and meroplankton and data on ichthyoplankton may also be reported. A text record is available for comments. Note: there are two options for reporting subsample counts of individuals at different life history stages. If life history codes are used, only number of adults should be reported on that record. Additional separate records should then be used to report number of juveniles and so on. Alternatively, life history codes may not be used and number of adults, juveniles, and so entered in the proper fields of a single record.
